Holly Booth (Dillabough)
With heavy hearts, as the result of a car crash, we share the tragic news of Holly’s death on Thurs., Sept. 7, 2017. Holly, age 40, of Jasper, Ont., was the newlywed and loving wife of Ryan Dillabough.
An entrepreneur, Holly was the new owner of Kilmarnock Orchard, and was already working toward certifying it as an organic orchard. True to her character, she lavished care and attention on the apples in order to produce a healthy crop of nutritious, tasty fruit. Her apples are just a tangible reminder of her nurturing legacy that will endure with her family and friends forever.
She was fun, happy and reliable — a rock for many people. Her incredible and never-ending love of her nieces and nephews contributed significantly to the well being of the entire family. She will be missed beyond belief.
She was the beloved granddaughter of Hazel Booth. Holly was the cherished daughter of the late Margaret Mitchell and the late Grant Booth. She was the much-loved daughter-in-law of Ron and Elaine Dillabough. She was the considerate, warm-hearted, and understanding sister of DeeDee (Steven) Bekkers, Dodi Booth, Hazel Booth (Chris Locke), Grant Booth (Elise Pendlebury), and Megan Booth (Michel Raats). She was the loving sister-in-law of Dana (J.J.) Huisjes. Holly was the completely adoring and most amazing Aunt EVER of Rachel, Amy, Dayna, Myah, Landon, Stevie, Jacob, Luke, Bianca, Adelaide, and Gauge. She will be fondly remembered by Uncle Mark Dillabough; dear friend and previous business partner, Kurt Gebhardt; numerous best friends; and playful dog, Marshmallow.
The family will receive family and friends at the Mountain Township Agricultural Hall 2967 Lough Rd. in South Mountain, today (Wed., Sept. 13) from 6 to 9 pm. A Celebration of Life for Holly and her Mom will be held at Kilmarnock Orchards, a place they both adored, 1182 Kilmarnock Rd. in Jasper, on Thurs., Sept. 14 at 11 am followed by interment at Knights Cemetery in Inkerman at 4 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
For those wishing, donations in memory of Holly may be made to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Foundation.
